The Mazda CX-5 has been redesigned into its second-generation model. The all-new CX-5, which inherits Mazdaâ€™s Kodo Soul of Motion design from its previous model, offers a powerful presence just like the original CX-5.
The engine lineup consists of a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine as well as direct injection SKYACTIV-G 2.5- and 2.0-liter gasoline engines. The transmission is a six-speed automatic system.
Mazda describes the all-new CX-5 as offering â€œnew dimensions of driving pleasureâ€ and stating that this expresses everything about the new model would not be an exaggeration. The new CX-5 crossover SUV offers new dimensions throughout its exterior, interior and devices. This also includes its exterior coloring with the emergence of Soul Red Crystal Metallic from the previously featured Soul Red Premium Metallic.
The 2.0-liter gasoline model is priced from 2,462,400 yen to 2,689,200 yen and the 2.5-liter gasoline model from 2,689,200 yen to 2,916,000 yen. The 2.2-liter diesel CX-5 is priced from 2,775,600 yen to 3,526,200 yen. The gasoline models qualify for tax reductions of 40% and 25% in vehicle acquisition tax and vehicle weight tax, respectively, while the diesel model is exempt from both taxes.
